Math = Love: Monday Must Reads: Volume 44


It’s Monday yet again! That means it’s time to round-up as much of the awesomeness of twitter as possible. I hope you enjoy this peek at what I found inspiring this week. As more and more schools finish for the summer, these posts will likely become more and more infrequent until school starts back up in the fall.

Petteri Forselius, a math teacher in Finland, inspires with some awesome outdoor constructions.

Chris Smith shares a fun number fact. If you’re not subscribed to his free weekly email newsletter, you are missing out! Send Chris an email at to sign up! Roger Mansuy shares a photo of a great, visual multiplication table.Grabarchuk Puzzles shares a fun tangling sticks puzzle to challenge your students with.Max Goulding highlights an awesome logarithm based lattice puzzle.Ella Dickson blows my mind with these maths biscuits (or math cookies for American readers).Ed Southall shares a fun probability fact.Jonathon Smith offers up a way to help students unpack the lesson objective. I like how he makes the distinction between what students need to do and know.
I love how Sarah Suydam makes word problems into an event to be anticipated. James Edstrom shares a fun, math-y end of year project where students write their names in math symbols.David Butler takes Quarter the Cross to an entirely new level.
Over the years, I’ve given the assignment to write a letter of advice to future students. But, Mrs. Stelzer takes this project to an entirely new level.Ms. Grove shares some awesome student work on a circle vocabulary project.
Check out these Rings and Strings projects from Liza Goldberg!Sally Cosgrove inspires with a volume by slicing project.Mr Gray shares a creative, hands-on task for working with nets of a cube .John Golden combines Quarter the Cross with calculus, and the results are gorgeous!Megan Hayes-Golding shares the power of a math problem to travel and inspire.Sarah Rines shares a project where students design tiles to represent topics studied that year. They make for a beautiful display!
I’ve often had students draw histograms when working with experimental/theoretical probability. But, Joe Benforte has inspired me to have students represent the results using linking cubes in the future as they collect their results. This would make it super easy to combine the results of different groups! Sean Corey shares a WODB involving both fractional and negative exponents.
Check out this geometry quilt that Kim Spek‘s students are sewing!John Rowe shares a brilliant open middle problem for introducing probability.
 Until next week, keep sharing your awesome ideas!
